Classic topps move. Shipping notice is sent after hours on a Friday, so it looks like they are doing something, but nothing actually gets shipped for three days.

I really HATE that!

I got my shipping notice as well, and I had already received my Mars Attacks sets, so this very well could be our February sets?

Although I still order and enjoy their GPK Bizarre Holidays sets, so it could be that, too?

I also got a shipping notice last night, and it is definitely for the February Wackys.

I'm bummed.  The Feb sets did not come with the cardboard boxes.

Yep, that was a surprise.  I'm looking at it as a savings in packaging (and less room to store!).  They also left the Topps tape off the plastic cases, and used all shorter bubble wrap bags.

Another difference is that the coupons I got were all in five different groups:  1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16, and 17-20.  The playing cards were also consistently 3 of Diamonds and 4 of Clubs, or 9 of Spades and Queen of Hearts.  My collation was quite good.

Seriously? And not even a Topps branded seal?  I always like to keep a set sealed and one to look at.  I liked the boxes as they were sealed up and looked nice.  I was hoping they would make the boxes have a picture of the series wrapper like the checklist card. Now we get nothing.

Why can't we have nice things from Topps?  They get cheaper and cheaper....very disappointed about this.  :sad:

Wish there were more information about the odds of pulling a sketch.  Big difference between 1:2 versus 1:10.

Ordered my usual 2 sets - hoping for a sketch card but not counting on it

It would be nice to know the ratio

It's because Topps has a captured audience with the Wackys and they know it.  Those 500-600 will buy sets no matter what.  They don't need value-adds so all the frills get whittled down to squeeze the most profit because they don't see any reason not to.  Probably have made the decision that they're not going to increase their sales numbers too much.

Well, I see no reason to buy 2 sets now, so I'm down to just one a month. Too bad so sad.

It could be that the lack of a box was an error that they will correct with the March sets.

I think the box must have been a mistake as I had heard it would be all year.

Do you know if it will be purple to match the title card?

Looks like a lot of people are still waiting for their February sets to arrive. Last month, there was a ton of base sets, coupons, playing cards and wonkys on eBay for the January set.

    Well, the March Wackys set is on sale, and the artwork looks dynamite! Especially with the addition of sketch cards, there is no reason for holding back on buying some! Topps never did expand the purchase window, so get them now, before someone else finds your sketch card!
